Via request of the Consulate General of Japan in New York:
2nd Japanese Heritage Night at Mets Citifield
Please let your members, colleagues, friends and family know that the 2nd Japanese Heritage Night at Mets Citifield will be held onÂ Tuesday June 21st, 2011 when the Mets play the Oakland As withÂ Hideki Matsui in attendance. This is a fundraising event â€“ a portion of each ticket sold through our group will go to Japan relief efforts.
We will be sending out information about Group Sales as soon as the site is set up but this year, seats in three price categories will be grouped together:
- Baseline Box Silver seat =$54.00
- Pepsi Porch seat = $32.00
- Promenade Reserved Infield seat = $19.00
While we understand that not all of you are Mets fans, the Yankees do not provide a Heritage Night and we wanted to have a community event where Japanese and Japanese Americans and all those interested in â€œthings Japaneseâ€ could get together and have a good time. We look forward to everyoneâ€™s participation again this year.
Last year 400 tickets were purchased. This year, letâ€™s aim for 1,000!
If you are interested in helping out, please contact our organizing committee co-chairs: Ann Harakawa (aharakawa [at] twotwelve.com) or Marianne Yoshioka (mry5 [at] columbia.edu).
